As far as mental health goes, NJ (one of the strictest states) just runs a check to see if you've ever been committed. If so, you have the option to have a psychiatrist submit a note saying you are not a danger to your own health or the public's health by owning a gun.

I know some people fear that they'll try to talk to your therapists or whatever, but realistically, how would they even know you are seeing one? There's no database of people seeing therapists. Unless you volunteer that info, no one will know.

There's also a chance that they could (despite HIPAA laws) check for diagnoses of anything considered a "mental illness" or if someone has been diagnosed with something like ADHD or Aspergers/Autism, and check to see if anyone is on some sort of drug for it (or any other mental illness) as well.
